Feb. 6, 2013
Corvallis, Ore. - Brandon Taylor had a season-high 21 points and six assists, while Jarred DuBois scored 20 points in Utah's 82-64 loss at Oregon State. The Runnin' Utes dropped to 10-12, 2-8 in the Pac-12.
"We made a lot of mistakes, and coach told us that a lot of our pain was self-inflicted tonight," freshman point guard Brandon Taylor said. "We have to stop taking punches. We have to learn how to stay aggressive and to play with heart. That didn’t happen tonight, and we’re going to keep struggling if we don’t learn how to fight back."
With the score tied 12-12, OSU went on a 10-0 run before Glen Dean knocked down a triple from the right wing with 9:21 to play in the half. Utah would eventually draw even at 23 with a 6-0 run that was capped by a Jordan Loveridge bucket down low. The freshman came off the bench and finished with seven points and a team-high nine rebounds.
With the score now tied, the Beavers started to get the line on a regular basis as Roberto Nelson scored nine of the next 11 points all at the stripe. This gave the home side a 34-25 lead over Utah at the break. Taylor led all Ute scorers at intermission with eight points while Renan Lenz paced the Utes with six rebounds.
Trailing by 10 in the opening stages of the second period, Utah saw its opponents go on a 8-0 run to open up a 47-29 lead with 13:21 remaining. The Utes responded with an 8-0 run to get the margin back to single digits on a DuBois three-pointer.
Utah was still down by nine with 4:38 to go, but OSU salted things away with an 8-0 run to go up 16 with 2:38 in regulation. Despite the Utes picking it up offensively in the second half, the Beavers shot 59 percent from the floor en route to the win.
Nelson led all scorers with 26 points and five rebounds, while Joe Burton added 17 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds. Eric Moreland came off the bench to grab 15 rebounds and finished one point shy of a double-double. Oregon State also out-scored the Utes by 18 in the paint.
The Utes return to action on Saturday at 6 p.m. when they travel to take on No. 19 Oregon
